Michigan looking for approval to replace scoreboards at Big House
The University of Michigan’s athletic department is seeking approval from the Board of Regents to replace the scoreboards inside Michigan Stadium, according to a report from MLive.com.
According to the report, the athletic department will ask the school’s Board of Regents for approval to replace the 10-year-old scoreboards inside the Big House with more modern replacements. The price tag for the projected is estimated at $41 million.
The current scoreboards at Michigan Stadium were installed in 2011. Michigan is requesting replacement video boards because “The technology of those scoreboards has become obsolete and it has been increasingly difficult to source replacement parts.”
Michigan’s current scoreboards measure 62 feet in height and 108 feet in width. The height is expected to be the same while the width would expand further than 108 feet.
If the Board of Regents approves the project, new scoreboards are expected to be installed and running for the 2023 season.
